Blu-ray, HD DVD, Peripherals


It’s not just LG sticking with both high definition disc formats, with Buffalo announcing their first external optical drive able to read and write to Blu-ray Discs, and read HD DVDs.

The unit can read and write to double-layer (50GB) Blu-ray discs at up to six times speed, read HD DVDs at up to 3x, as well as read and write to standard DVDs at up to 16x.

The BRHC-6316U2 (whoa) is fully plug-and-play compliant, and connects via USB. Buffalo’s TurboUSB technology enhances performance and the Secure Lock Ware Windows software improves security.

Available from late April with a suggested price of £284.
